Grayson Capps steps in as the second performer for the Music at Meyer Park series on April 4. Hailed by NPR for his “unbridled energy and authenticity,” Capps first emerged as a solo artist in 2005. His debut record, ‘If You Knew My Mind,’ earned rave reviews. American Songwriter declared, “Take the poetry of Texas troubadour Townes Van Zandt, combine with Steve Earle’s edgy attitude and stir with a little cup of the bayou-blues (think Howlin’ Wolf) and you start to get a taste of Capps’s scrumptious gothic gumbo.” He has since gone onto release five similarly exalted albums that have earned him devoted followings in both the US and Europe.
All Music at Meyer Park concerts are free and open to the public. Shows begin at 6 p.m. at Meyer Park, which is located at 400 E. 22nd Ave. These are rain or shine events. In the event of rain, the back-up location for Grayson Capps on April 4 will be at LuLu’s.

The City of Gulf Shores is excited to announce the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the updated Meyer Park Playground on Thursday, April 11, at 5:30 p.m.
The goal of the Meyer Park Improvement Project was to improve and reconfigure the existing Meyer Park playground area. The project included replacing the playground, pouring new sidewalks with benches and re-sodding open areas near the pavilion and restrooms. The park also features new recycling containers, as part of the City-wide recycling initiative.
“We are very pleased with the outcome of the Meyer Park Improvement Project,” Recreation & Cultural Affairs Assistant Director Matt Young said. “Our primary focus was to provide a safe and enjoyable area for our kids to play. With these new updates, we hope that more of our residents and visitors will embrace Meyer Park and all it has to offer.”
Meyer Park is located in the Waterway Village District at 400 East 22nd Avenue.
